LOS ANGELES—Electronic Arts isn’t merely sitting on its video game rights to the Star Wars license after last year’s multiplayer-only Star Wars: Battlefront. In an E3-adjacent press presentation today, the company announced plans for a number of upcoming story-driven Star Wars titles from some of its biggest studios.
The announcements began with a new Battlefront game from developers DICE and Motive, featuring content from the new films. “What excites me now is bringing in more characters, more planets, more environments, more eras…” DICE Senior Producer Sigurlína Ingvarsdottir said.
That comes alongside a third-person action-adventure game from Titanfall-maker Respawn from “a different Star Wars era.” Then there’s the new action-adventure game from Visceral with “an original narrative… with new characters” from former Naughty Dog scribe Amy Hennig. “Our goal has always been not to just make a game in the Star Wars universe, but to tell an authentic Star Wars story… How do you ground the unfamiliar and new in the familiar?” Hennig said.
